This is a tough one when done with good form. I emphasize good form because I thought I had it but in the past year my strength has increased markedly by: 1)Ensuring my forearm stays perpendicular to the ground when doing pushups. Watch yourself in a mirror and you will be surprised when you see that you are not doing this! 2) Making sure my shoulders are above my wrists for any plank type movement or straight arm press. Pressing into the ground is also crucial. I was pressing back ever so slightly but you really have to be over those wrists so far that you almost feel like you are too far over. That is the proper position. Last year I thought plank-ups were a forearm exercise. Now with good form I know it engages the shoulders and upper back too. My shoulders were my weakest link but this workout really demanded something of my shoulders. I would never have discovered this workout either had I not started reading the reviews page.
Great, intense upper body workout! Also got the core going but big focus was upper body. Added bonus is that it's a cardio workout due to minimal rest between rounds and exercises.
